REsurrection

Thanks to some Zoo friends...i've been reminded of my vintage rock collection (apart frm Led Zep that is). So I've been listening to Queen, Extreme, Creedence Clearwater Revival, ACDC etc. Good stuff...esp the Queen live at wimbley collection. Amazing voice Freddie Mercury had!! Extreme's "More than words" is one of the most moving ballads I've ever heard...Sang it many times with friends accompanying on the acoustic guitar. The best part of the whole thing...was this beat ...."knocking on the guitar"...which this friend of mine Basty used to do...it hit home. CK sang it a few nights ago...and that was beautiful as well...it was great to resurrect the song after soooo long. Oh and i finally mustered the courage to sing a small Norah Jones song in front of an audience...hehe. "Lonestar".....soon the old Ammu will be back in full force...

Hmm, in other news...The Freakshow is certified to descend on 18-19th Nov 2005. Hotel bookings done! :D

Still praying for people in Mexico...and now Florida...

Lots of Happy Monday wishes,

The guitar slaps/knocks...that's one of the things I love about "More than Words" too. There's a Canadian singer named Holly Cole, who used to (maybe still does?) have a group called the Holly Cole Trio. Her bass player did that all the time on his upright bass...it was awesome! He's soooo good. If I recall correctly, she did some recording with Daniel Lanois at one point too. I remember e-mailing her once, and getting a reply...that was cool. :-)

As for Queen...yes, yes they really do rule.
